Default PZ micro T28-safe glue

What glue/adhesive is ok for this plane? the little plastic lever for the rudder is loose on it, I am thinking a little glue would be ok but I know that not all glues work on foam planes

New out of box; maybe a little too much wind as it didn't go where I wanted it to; and the rudder is hard over to one side now!!! Not sure why. I tried adjusting it with trim but it's too far over for that. So it looks like the only fix is to break the connection that is near the rudder; or the one inside by the servo.

Anyone have to this? I am thinking wrap with thin thread, coat with superglue and go. But maybe there's a better way that is secure

Regards

I use 5 minute epoxy but on a micro you can probably use anything

I looked up what kind of foam the T28 is made of; I thought the source said it's Z-Foam.
I looked up Z-foam; apparently it's CA safe

I tested CA on a non critical area; and it ate it up.

So, I don't think regular CA will cut it!!!

I've ordered some Foam Safe CA; I will repeat the test and report back
